Production Hell... Fantastic Four (2015)

Datum objavljivanja: 6. Tra 2021.
Fantastic Four, or Fant4stic, or whatever it's supposed to be called, was one of the biggest flops of all time. It was also notorious for its deeply troubled production, director Josh Trank's meltdowns and rushed reshoots. So let's point and laugh at it, shall we?

    • Why didn't you mention the Race Swap of Johnny Storm/Human Torch?! People were PISSED about that when it was announced! That played a large role in it's failure. I guess nobody wants to talk about that............

    • When you say marvel you actually mean Disney.

    • thanks for your support

    • Day 4 of recommending attack on titan to drinker

    • Hey will. I randomly came across some old vhs's and discovered kindergarten cop I was wondering if you be willing to do a review of that movie it seems perfect for your critique

  • You read my mind I was literally thinking the other day, “I hope the drinker makes another production hell video soon”

  • I think it is based on Fantastic Four rebirth

  • Fant Four Stic!

  • not enough credit to nolan for reviving batman

  • But black johnny? Imagine black panther being played by a white dude... Wtf? Also how can he be a brother to a white invisible woman?

  • I didn't even know this Movie existed.

  • Think everyone e is overlooking one important thing. The Fantastic Four Are. Not. Interesting. No one cared to even see the film bomb because characters are deadends. Upstaged by more engaging superheros. They would get better views giving the characters to Axel Braun.

  • I like it.

  • #ReleaseTheTrankCut :)

  • I fully believe that not having access to FF and X-men is partially responsible for the success of the MCU. Both of those titles are too full of the dumbest variety of comic juice. Far too difficult to be done properly as films.

  • Watching this movie at the theaters was bizarre, because I could swear that at about half of the scenes shown in the trailer wasn't in the movie. Then you saw the director's warning about how shit it was going to be and it all made sense after that. :D

  • *just remember...wearing spandex is a privilege, not a right*

  • The 2005 F4 was at least entertaining to watch.

  • Never seen it, never will

  • I’m pretty sure they used the exact same photo of Chris Evans on both Fantastic Four movie posters

  • You know, I'm starting to feel bad for The Critical Drinker lately...so many bad movies, so little time.

  • Wait... There was a Fantastic Four movie in 2015?

  • Kate Mara can actually act, and she's been in some good films. Such a shame that she has this film on her record. She was wasted in this.

  • They have this thing, that if they cast young virtually inexperienced youngsters, it will appeal, to the public. But its dull, and uninspiring.

  • Fantastic bore.

  • Not gonna lie, I actually liked the teaser trailer for Fant4stic. I liked the dark tone of it.

  • The Pyro-Kinetic Character in Bryan Singer's X-Men Days of the Future Past was more creative with his Pyro-Kinesis in the 1st and 3rd than the Human Torch was in the whole 2015 Fantastic Four Film. And he was just a supporting character where the Human Torch was one of the lead main characters.

  • I didn't mind it too much when I first saw it in the theaters but lord the plot holes and ending the second time around

  • Is thunder thighs worse?

  • Critical drinker is awesome, marvel is awkward nihilist rubbish though

  • It has Kate Mara though.. so not all bad. I’d forgive her for shitting right in my mouth.

  • I just found my new favorite channel.

  • Say what you will about the earlier Fantastic Four movies, but I just can't hate anything with Jessica Alba in it.

  • Why didn't you mention the Race Swap of Johnny Storm/Human Torch?! People were PISSED about that when it was announced! That played a large role in it's failure. I guess nobody wants to talk about that............

  • I guess people forget how forgettable the Fantastic Four are as comic characters

  • I guess the moral of the story is, don't bring your shitty childhood to work. 😉😉

  • At this moment in TIME, 157 Fanboys have voted 'Thumbs Down' on this video. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Hollywierd. They just. Don't. Get it.

  • Definitely racism somehow. I'll think of a way.

  • 0:09 the first movie was ok , i like it back then

  • I’m just gonna go ahead and say it... #releasethetrankcut

  • How could fans not want a grim Fantastic Four? Isn't Ben Grim part of that team?

  • #ReleasetheTrankcut :D :D :D :D :D

  • I've still never seen it, should I? Haha

  • Wow you know a movie is bad if stan Lee didn't wanna appear in it. And that dude appeared in daredevil.

  • I love these "Production Hell" videos as much as I like the movie-reviews/analyses. I'm a big movie-buff anyway, so the behind-the-scenes stories are really interesting to me, particularly when it involves a really chaotic production.

  • Fant4stic 😂

  • Honestly, the two 2000’s F4 films, I genuinely love and own on Blu-ray

  • After Capone tosh trank should never make another movie

  • I would love to see production hell for Godzilla 1998, Lone Ranger Disney and Ang Lee Hulk.

  • Pornstar Caprice and her black brother playing as Human Torch-yeah nobody took this shit movie seriously.

  • I remember there were leaks of this movie that it was shit long before it reached theaters with the entire story leaked. I couldn’t accept the leaks and figured there was no way it could be that terrible. Took my family to see this movie and it seemed like De Ja Vu as the movie played out just as dumb as the leaks promised scene for scene.

  • Fox Studios would turn any director to drink or drugs. With their constant meddling alone.

  • Fantastic Four was Doomed from the start? Imagine that!

  • I liked this FF actually. But I’m not a Marvel fan at all 🤔🤔

  • I would have just directed a porn movie with the given characters. Heavily abusing cgi and the powers of the individuals.

  • I kinda liked fantastic 4 and silver serfer of early 2000s. It was fun.

  • Corporatism. Turning Gifts of humanity into a soulless nightmares.

  • Fun fact, Toy Story 2 also had production hell and somehow turned into a masterpiece.

    • @Marcelo I forgot the channel but look up Toy Story 2 WTF happened to this movie? And you’ll see it all. It’s about 19 minutes I think

    • @Marcelo It was also supposed to be a direct to video movie

    • Realy? I just knew the part than they erased all animation files during production, fortunate an animator had an backup of the files.

  • The reshoots are so obvious. Sue Storms wig is honestly the worst wig I’ve ever seen.

  • Speaking about production hell, how about Empires of the Sea, with Olga Kurylenko, in production since 2010???

  • My wife and I went into the theater hyped to see a F4 movie and walked out discussing if we'd ever seen a crappier movie. We couldn't think of one that was worse.

  • Ill never support films that blackwash white characters.

  • I liked the fact they were trying something new. And it's a fascinating watch. Despite it's flaws. I really would like a brighter version of The Fantastic 4. Where they go against another villain. For god sakes don't go against Doom again!

  • To me, it's just a very forgettable movie. Only part I remember is the suits with the helmet when they went into that portal crap. Besides that, the movie, characters, and plot were boring. I forgot I even watched this damn movie

  • Been a FF reader for over 40 years. The 2005, 2007 films may not be the cape equivalents of citizen Kane, but you will never get a better comic to film realization of characters as Chris Evans' Johnny and Michael Chiklis Ben. Chiklis' Ben Grimm was pitch perfect, it was as if Kirby himself had cast and directed him.

  • Please review Thunder Force

  • 1. Old-fashioned, silly characters that aged horribly 2. Horrible, disrespectful casting choices like black Human Torch 3. Studio doing the wrong thing for the wrong reasons 4. Shitty director with daddy issues What could go wrong?

  • Funny thing is, the low budget time waster in the '80s was still better than what was to come.

  • Damn . I thought i will die before i see new production hell episode . Thank god

  • Even tought it sure would be a horrible mess, i am still curius to see the original cut of this movie

  • Smile and the whole world smiles with you. Fart, and you stand alone. C'mon critical you blown enough ass gas to know this Nobody is your friend when your not cool anymore.

  • Sounds eerily similar to a certain OTHER director who wanted to "subvert audience expectations" ...aka the infamous Rian Johnson. What IS IT with these emo directors taking on big budget films and trying to mold them into their own personal therapy sessions? This Josh Trank guy even went on a social media tirade, berating and insulting fans...just like Rian Johnson. I really wish studios would actually do a better job in matching the directors with films that suit their directing styles.

  • So that's why the final act is like 10 minutes

  • 3:23 I doubt it. Those deals saved them from bankruptcy.

  • The Ultimate F4 movie...not literally. It's based on the Ultimate comics.

  • I had to stop watching this due to how boring the fantastic four are and always have been.

  • Fan4stic, thank-you very much

  • I don't know if you see this message Mr. Drinker, but would you maybe like to review Road to Perdition with Tom Hanks? I think it is a very good movie myself.

  • This Josh Trank sounds like an absolute and utter ass

  • Would love you to cover the preachy woke atrocity that is “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” at some point soon. Ratings for the show seem to be tanking more and more either such new episode...

  • Fantastic Four 2015 it's one of those movies were that Monster named WOKE started shiting all over cool things big time! Clearly they race swapped the character of The human torch or whatever his name is....

  • Drinker...”Lucky” Jack Aubrey...a true Master and Commander...is calling out to you from Beyond the Far side of the World

  • So you're saying we need a Fantastic 4 Trank cut?

  • YOU NEED TO WATCH "I CARE ALOT" AND CHANNEL MY RAGE. THIS MOVIE SUCKED BALLS!

  • How do they keep mucking up Dr. Doom's character. He's one of the best villains ever. He's like Darth Vader if he ruled the whole Empire and was a mad scientist. Doom's final university project was a chair which could send you to hell and back. Why would anyone want to visit hell? Doom would because his innocent mother had an ancient Nordic curse put on her which sent her to hell so Doom wanted to visit. Sure this project got him expelled but that takes serious balls to hand in a project like that.

  • Hmm and now I'm wondering about the House of Mouse long game

  • 60 years worth of great adventures and the studio couldn't adapt a single one into movie.

  • The movie's so woke they made Johnny Storm black but they're not so woke that they also made his sister Sue Storm black because they still need a pretty which girl. It would have made more sense to make Ben Grim black but of course then they'd be accused of making the black character look inhuman. Alright, make Reed Richard black. Oh no, they're not woke enough to actually make the team leader black. It's like they did the laziest thing possible to cram a black character into the movie.

  • So badly stolen from Planetary, Moore and Ellis can finally compare war stories

  • The Beatrix/Harry Potter/Fantastic 4/Under the Sea/Namor I've always dreamed - go the House of Mouse

  • And there I thought it was part of the Snyderverse

  • A studio's fantastic nightmare that burnt with flames.

  • It's ALMOST the 2010s version of the Island of Dr. Moreau's troubled production

  • Why would you wanna make Kate Mara cry???

  • i forgot this movie ever existed

  • I still have yet to watch this movie, and I have watched every Marvel movie, even Howard the Duck.

  • I will PAY YOU $100 if you do a live review of Jiu Jitsu while drinking.

  • For the love of everything holy, review Jiu Jitsu (2020) with Nic Cage.

  • #ThunderForce

  • #TheCriticalDrinker Thunder force is on netflix it's great haha.

  • The Director wants to make a Extended Version, just like Snyder Movie Killer Did! Just think more 4 hours of shit, just like Justice Garbage League Snyder Cut!

  • 3 generations of Fantastic 4 movies, and all of them were shit. Maybe this franchise just doesn't translate to the big screen?

  • I know that you said that Fox was a big part of the problem behind the scenes, but from you said about Trank himself, he can fuck right off. Disrespecting the source material, dumping on his actors, trashing a place that wasn't his? Scandalous.
